This is the first time ever I'm making a complaint about a Nokia device which I own and and unfortunately it it this very handset, the E71.
After the firmware update the phone performed absolutely brilliantly until now. The phone started to freeze all of a sudden. Tried formatting the memory card, restoring original factory settings none of which helped me until I re-installed the firmware.
So what I just wanted to tell you guys is that if your phone gives any of those symptoms just do the firmware re-installation or upgrade it and you will be just fine.
Rishi, 01 Jul 2009Is Nokia E71 Blackberry compatible?? What is the price that u get it for in KolkataNeither the E71 or E66 is blackberry compatible. Nokia launched their own e-mail client so none of the newly launched E-Series devices are blackberry compatible. Older versions such as the E51 is blackberry compatible though.
This is phone has never let me down, as an Electronics Engr. I am impressed with both its Hardware & Software capabilities especially its speed of operation. (I have used it for about a year)
However, so far, the only "drawback" is its battery life, though a better battery would have translated to a more expensive phone & incompatibility with other E series phones.
Bottom-line: Kudos to Nokia!

hi guys, jus bought my e71 and im happy with it. i have a question, it doesnt say on the manual how you connect or disconnect the usb cable. do you "yank" it out slowly, or do you have to lift if either up or down to pull the usb cable out?? as you may have noticed the usb cables connector has "teeths" on its end, and i guess it has a special purpose their other than to hold the cable securely... i hope i can read some credible replies soon. thank you

AGPS is HW and assiciated SW function. If ur mobile has it then any GPRS would do. GPRS is still required, I think.

actually I want to ask that for using AGPS, u have to take service from ur service carrier or it will work just like ordinary GPS device, means they dont need any service, they just do that job directly receiving signals from sattelites.
Hi, can anyone tell me if they've experienced any problems with the signal on their E71? I'm in the UK and I keep losing my signal completely and my friend, who has the same phone, is also experiencing the same. Our phones are only a few months old. I've checked with the network provider and they aren't aware of any problems at all.
atif, 01 Jul 2009freinds , can u tell me some thing about A-GPS like it does not work, just like GPS device me... moreGPRS maps take ur location from the communication towers, while GPS gives ur location from the satellites (40 of them in space). Very accurate. can give ur location within 4 to 5 meters at the most. GPRS gives ur location is a circle of the range of the nearest comm tower. could be 500 meter to a few miles. AGPS is for navigating from point A to point B. with directions in audio and video.
In E71, when u start Google maps, ur location is from the towers and when it has got a fix on the satellites. It does take a few minutes, but after that it follows ur path instantly and very accurately. I have tried walking as well as in a car. Fantastic is the word.
In answer to the person who asked about how to avoid fingerprints, yes the stainless steel looks so good but you only have to touch it a couple of times and it looks a mess! I buy crystal case covers for mine cheaply from eBay. They don't offer much protection but they stop the fingerprint problem.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2009The fone is wonderful me. The only problem is the battery durability what is the problem? how many time the charge of the battery play in normal use?

do you know if there's a big/small difference if your E71 phone is made in Korea as compared to Finland?
Some says that Finland is durably made than our Asian counterpart... or is it the other way around?
Some says it DOESNT really matter where its made..
What's your take on this?? Does it really make any difference at all?
